Inspired background

I attempted a background I saw demonstrated on a video - using pens and a spray bottle.  I am not sure where my sprayer is right now, so I tried an aqua pen - which did not work at all.  As you can see, the result is sharper lines than I anticipated - but I decided to go with what I had.  I used washi tape in similar colors for the strips.  The stamp is Stampabilities, and the embossing is Woven by LifeStyle crafts.  My original inspiration was the silhouette look.

Gorgeous! Love the technique and colors. And the washi tape is inspiring because I have washi tape and need to use it more. Thanks for playing along at Eureka! Stamps Anything Goes Challenge. Lisa DT
